The 7 Life Stages of Mail: Couples

Home / The 7 Life Stages of Mail: Couples

couples quote
Finding their feet, building a future – before, after or without kids. This group of people respond to messages which involve their home, community and social life. These people are 26% more likely to have bought or ordered something as a result or receiving addressed mail.  
 

Couples’ attitudes to mail tend to cluster around the average for all groups. Compared to Fledglings and Sharers, they are beginning to take a more structured approach to their mail.

 

 
 

Couples are focused on friends, but operating as a “unit”
  • – Like Sharers, Couples are socially active. But they are conscious of their status as a ‘unit’ and responsibilities to each other. Overall, they are exhibiting longer-term perspectives.
  • – Still enjoying new experiences, but building (stylish) lives beyond the thrill of the moment.
  • – Mail is becoming more ‘normal’: Couples take a more ordered approach than Sharers to dealing with mail and its contents, but less so than Young Families and Older Families.

 

 

Living space may influence how couples treat mail
  • – Some Couples, particularly younger ones, may live in smaller accommodation. Mail may therefore take a shorter, faster journey around the home, dealt with or disposed quickly.
  • – Making your message clear and unambiguous on the envelope and in the contents will help drive attention and action.
  • – Mail may be dealt with outside the home so digital response mechanisms are important. Mail may also be discussed with colleagues or friends.

 

 

Letterbox drops play a role for local amenities and businesses
  • – Couples pay more attention to their home and their local area. Door drops by local businesses or localised operations of larger companies are likely to resonate.

β€œI received a booklet from estate agents; a property magazine, and I actually bought my house from the info that was advertised within it – off plan – and I got quite a good deal.”

Stephen, Couples respondent

Everyday, someone in Australia suffers a spinal cord injury. From workplace incidences, to road and water accidents or extreme sports, the event of permanent paralysis is always unexpected and frequently preventable.

PBF Australia (The Paraplegic Benefit Fund) was established to create greater awareness of these risks, with the aim of reducing the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury in Australia. Quickmail are proud to be members of Paraplegic Benefit Fund Australia.

Yesterday Quickmail had a presentation from Symon and Katie. On behalf of the staff at Quickmail, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Your visit has no doubt left a strong impression with us all and left us thinking of ways to aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work, on the road and at play.

Some key statistics surrounding spinal cord injuries include the following:
- 3 spinal cord injuries per week in WA
- Approximately 141 spinal cord injuries per year in WA
- 46% of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle related
- 34% of spinal cord injuries are from falls
- 11% of spinal cord injuries is an β€œother” category (i.e. violence, being hit by objects, jerked off a horse, etc.)
- 9% of spinal cord injuries are Aquatic related
- Average age of a spinal cord injury is 43 primarily due to slips, trips and falls but the common age bracket for young adults is 15-24 particularly in males.
